of the house of representatives, and for him to say the president and harry reid ought to get together and come up with a solution. to me he is insulting himself. >> stephanie: yeah. >> but the other thing is that the republican conference and the house of representatives enacted the sequester. >> stephanie: right. >> 170-something members it would not have passed without him -- >> stephanie: but congressman he is said it's the president's sequester hashtag. >> i know, and i didn't know the president has a vote in the congress. >> stephanie: yeah. there are a lot of people talk about all of the ways the sequester will impact people's lives, and charlie pierce was on, and he wrote a great piece about this is all local news has time to cover. so democrats have already won the pr, you know battle here so how do you see this playing out by friday? >> well, i still think we're going to get some kind of delay in the sequester. i think ultimately -- the rational thing will ultimately happen at the very last minute after every other absurd solution is abandoned. >> steph

congressional leaders from both houses and both parties. so that's mitch mcconnell, harry reid, nancy pelosi and john boehner. in response i think to the number of democrats and the first lady bringing victims of gun violence with them as guests to the state of the union this year, to highlight that issue, one republican member of congress this year has decided to do his part to advance the serious consideration of gun violence and lawful gun ownership in america by inviting as his guest for the state of the union this gentleman. >> hey obama, you might want to suck on one of these, you punk! obama, he's a piece of [ bleep ] and i told him to suck on my machine gun. let's hear it for him. i said hey, humor me. you might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless [ bleep ]. >> mr. ted nugent is a musician. i believe he is still mostly known for "cat scratch fever", but i could be wrong. he was investigated by the secret service last year after telling an nra convention in april of 2012, quote, if barack obama is elected, i'll either be dead or in jail this time next year." texas

, chris, something that stood out to me is the backbone of harry reid. had he perhaps more of a backbone during these filibuster negotiations, and filibuster reform, perhaps he wouldn't be sitting here having this discussion anyway, and some of the fault, maybe a large portion of the fault lay with harry reid for us even having this discussion this morning? >> well, in fairness, look, both sides have threatened to do something about the filibuster and both sides are reluctant to do it, because quite frankly, they know the once that were in the majority now know at some point they'll be in the minority and vice versa and you know, there is some deference made to some rules of the senate and one of the things they all say if we'd stop the filibuster we'd become just like the house and i promise you on in congress on capitol hill that's not a compliment. >> is there any merit to what democrats are saying about the g.o.p. blocking this and putting the country at risk 'cause it's such an important security post? >> no, i mean, for one thing, the senate democrats said well, we're not going to
